U.S.-led scientists say the solar cycle, Earth's stratosphere and oceans work in sync to produce global weather patterns. The researchers, headed by the U.S.
Researchers from NCAR have created the first-ever model to simulate the impact of the sunâ€™s radiation fluctuations on the earthâ€™s climate.
Determined to understand why some storms grow into hurricanes while others fizzle, NASA scientists recently looked deep into thunderstorms off the African coast using satellites and airplanes.
U.S. scientists say they've determined rain evaporation and continental convection play an important part in the tropical water cycle.
